This was my second visit to Pritikin and it was as wonderful as the first. I noticed quite a number of other second-timers as well as people who had been coming for years (for a “reboot”). There's a reason for this. The place is great. The dietary regime and underlying philosophy are sound. Under the medical plan, you have blood...

I truly wanted to love this place. I came down to check it out for a week and, if I liked it, book the entire months of January and February. The idea of combining Florida weather and healthy diet and exercise seemed compelling. Unfortunately, I really didn't like the place. The staff and management make it a failure but I'll...

Pritikin was a visionary whose concept of a healthy diet and exercise really works. What is amazing about his story is that he was not a doctor and he went against the medical establishment at the time. Great story, and certainly worth pursuing his concept, as you will inevitably live a healthier and possibly a longer life. We visited several...

I only stayed 3 days but it was a very interesting and busy time. I learned a lot in a short time, the whole resort is beautiful. We stayed in the Spa Suites which are really spacious. In the Pritikin Spa I had a very nice manicure (thanks Cary!) and I had a very nice blow-dry as well! I highly...

My 2 week stay was actually a gift from a loving and generous sister who wanted to share her "Pritikin way of life" with me. She and her husband are "regulars" at the center and go back a couple of times a year "just to reprogram ". To be honest, I went because it would be a free 2 week...

His knowledge is admirable, his advice priceless, and he is very generous with his time during the initial interview. The subsequent written report one receives certainly will help any future trainer one may choose upon return home.

I have stayed at the Pritikin Longevity center three times now. I have reviewed the Trump resort Doral separately, which is where you will stay as Pritikin is located there. Otherwise Pritkin is independent of Trump. If you need what they offer -- help with weight, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, heart disease, etc this is the best place you can come. The...
